PRICE WARS EXPAND

Fresh on the heels of Amazon's price drops at Whole Foods, Target recently announced it was dropping prices on thousands of items across the store. Cheapism recently scoured an Ohio Target store to give you an idea of what kind of savings to expect during your next Target run.

We found plenty of markdowns, particularly among toiletries, household staples, and groceries. Savings are especially concentrated among Target's store brands, and in the grocery aisle, it's clear Target is wooing those Whole Foods customers with price cuts on natural and organic products. (Note that prices may vary by location. The prices quoted here are those seen in-store. They may or may not be the same as the online prices, and they don't reflect limited-time sales or promotions.)
